Q.    I want to learn German language. Can you tell me any institute for the same? – Ms. Yamini 
A.  Learning a foreign language can benefit you personally and professionally. Foreign languages such as German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and French are widely pursued by students. For studies in German language, you may consider training from Goethe Institute (Max Muller Bhavan). Also, University of Mumbai offers diploma, graduate and postgraduate courses in German studies and translation.

Q.    Can I pursue architecture studies after 12th commerce? – Mr. Ravi 
A.    If you have taken 12th with Mathematics as a subject, then you are eligible for Bachelor of Architecture courses. Remember, you will have to give entrance exams such as NATA, JEE-Main-(Paper 2), MAH-AR-CAT for admission to B.Arch. courses.

Q.   I have completed my B.E. (Telecommunication Engineering) last year. I do not want to continue in telecom field, and I am also not keen on MBA. I am having an interest in law. Is it possible to do law after engineering in Mumbai? – Mr. Sanjeev 
A.   You can definitely pursue law after your graduation. You will have to pursue a Bachelor of Law (LLB) degree which is of 3 years duration. If you are pursuing LLB from colleges in Mumbai, such as Government Law College or KC Law College, you do not have to give any entrance exam. However, many colleges across the country need you to give CLAT entrance exam before admission to LLB course.

Q.    Is there scope for pursuing career in archaeology or anthropology? – Ms. Mary 
A.    Anthropology is the study of the origin and the physical, social and cultural development and behaviour of mankind; whereas, Archaeology is the study of human cultures and activities in the past, through the recovery, documentation, and analysis of remains. You can find employment opportunities at Archaeology Survey of India (ASI), National Archives of India, National Mission on Monuments, Organizations such as UNESCO, WHO, UNICEF and ICHR. Plus there are good number of job opportunities in museums, art galleries, libraries, archives, heritage sites, conservation firms, crime and forensic investigating agencies, and tourism industry.

Q.  I am interested to get into information technology field. But I do not enjoy programming. Should I reconsider my decision and look for a different career option? – Mr. Steven 
A.   Information Technology is a very vast field. Students normally assume that IT is all about programming languages. This is not true. You may get into the field of IT and specialise in domains such as operating systems management, network administration, database management, application support, storage administration, IT security administration, virtualization and cloud computing. You may also look at areas of business analysis (BA) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
